James writes with exquisite perception and surgical precision; he is a poet of powerful argument and emotional force
A writer whose commanding voice contains a constant variety of colour and tone
After writing poems for 50 years, his technique is deft and assured
He is a unique figure, a straddler of genres and a bridger of the gaps between high and low culture. He will be seen, I think, as one of the most important and influential writers of our time
